Impact of Harvesting on a Tourism Business near Ootsa Lake

The Board received a complaint from the owner of a tourism business near Ootsa Lake, in the Nadina Forest District alleging that logging by Tyeewood Inc. is harming his business and trespassing on timber harvesting rights previously granted to him. The Board investigated whether logging in the area was consistent with strategic guidance for tourism and recreation; whether harvesting was consistent with MOFR’s commitment to the complainant; and whether consultation on the proposed forest development was adequate.
